According to the World Health Organization, more than 450 million people worldwide had a mental health problem in 2001 and figures have increased since then. Now, we have all heard the names of common mental health disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and so on. However, there are a few other disorders that you may have never heard about and are actually quite bizarre in nature. Let’s take a look at the top 10 bizarre psychological disorders that you may have never heard about.
#1 – Walking Corpse Syndrome
If you like zombie movies and wish you could be one too, wish for this strange mental disorder. Cotard’s Delusion, nicknamed as the Walking Corpse Syndrome, is a rare disorder in which a person believes that he or she does not exist or is actually dead.
Jules Cotard was the first person to describe this disorder in 1880 as ‘délire des negations’ or negative deliriums. People with this disorder have a distorted reality and truly believe that they are dead. They may report that their blood or the organs of their body have been removed or that they are decomposing. Now, that makes for an interesting movie on the walking dead, don’t you think?
